That's actually kind of sobering. I used to know dozens of folks born in the 1800s (including my and DW's grand parents.) IIRC, the last verified survivor of the Civil War died in the mid 1950's ('56??). I still recall the news - it may have even made the "Weekly Reader" that we used to enjoy reading at school. Makes me feel very old. But I digress - again.
